About Canine Chiropractic

Canine chiropractic care
is a drugless alternative method of health care. Many have found chiropractic helpful when it comes to increasing energy, improving sports performance and even increasing resistance to disease.

Canine chiropractic care works with the nervous system to help the brain better communicate with the body. This is done using chiropractic adjustments which specifically help to keep joints properly aligned. Better communication within the body means better functioning of that body in all activities.

Chiropractic does not replace traditional forms of veterinary health care. It works really well with it! When a joint is affected it looses motion and then eventually proper position as well. The chiropractic adjustment restores motion and alignment and therefore function and performance.

There are many causes of misalignment which may include injuries, improperly fitting saddles or harnesses, stall confinement, need for hoof care, poor confirmation, too much work or even not enough work. Symptoms you may observe include:

  • lameness
  • difficulty putting on a collar or harness
  • does not want to be touched or pet
  • can't jump up
  • shows sudden behavioral changes
  • shows body stiffness
  • shows body weakness
  • excessive paw licking
  • dragging the feet
  • dragging the hind end
  • favors sitting to one side
  • digestion troubles
  • shows the beginnings of incontinence
  • shows a decreased interest at play or work
  • poor performance in competition
  • dogs who suffer congenital joint disease

Chiropractic works by finding the cause of the problem, attempts to eliminate that cause and then allows the body to heal itself.

Keep in mind that your dog may or may not experience any symptoms of spinal misalignment but a regular check up will help to prevent any problems that may arise in the future!


Chiropractic Fact:
Chiropractic care enhance your animal’s athletic performance. 
This can be accomplished in two ways. First, aligning joints properly to improve biomechanics can greatly increase muscle efficiency, leading to greater speed and strength. Second, improving the function of motor nerves to muscle groups can also enhance strength and coordination.
